Jungle Queen is a 5 reel, 3 row, 20 payline powered by Novomatic that is playable from 40p to £50 per spin across desktop, mobile and tablet devices. You join the fierce empress in the tropical jungle who is armed with a bow and arrow – it has a superb Free Games feature where you begin with 5 free spins as well as sticky wild reels and 20 more paylines.
Visually, Jungle Queen is what you’d expect from a Novomatic title – set in a dense and tropical jungle, the reels and symbols have an Aztec feel to them. Symbols on the reels include playing cards A, K, Q and J as well as daggers, snakes, monkeys and tribal style necklaces.
The monkey is highest paying regular symbol giving you 20 times your stake for 5 on a payline. There is also a scatter (the mask) which also gives you the same payout as the monkey. In the base game, you will play with 20 paylines on 3 rows.
You also have the Jungle Queen herself which is the wild symbol and substitutes for all symbols except the scatter – it only appears on the 3 middle reels. When 1 or more appear fully, you will trigger the Free Games feature where you begin with 5 free spins.
Once in the feature, the number of paylines increases from 20 to 40 as well as the number of rows increasing to 5. The wild will also expand to take over the whole reel and remains sticky for the duration of the feature. The wild can appear on all 5 reels and when it appears fully on a reel, it will expand and hold for the remaining free spins. Furthermore, each extra wild landing will give you 1 more free spin.
Basically, you can benefit from sticky wild reels which can prove very lucrative – it’s a high variance offering of course with the big wins coming from the Free Games feature naturally. Jungle Queen is nice to look at and has a killer bonus feature – will you prove yourself worthy to go a journey through the tropical forests? If you like sticky wild reels, I also suggest you play WMS’ Black Knight II.
